Jackson Dean hit the stage at Gilley’s Las Vegas in Treasure Island Hotel and Casino on July 18!

This rising star gave a soulful performance and became another artist that graced the Gilley’s stage.

Back in February, Dean came into Coyote Country‘s performance vault during his radio tour. It was during that performance that we knew that Dean was a superstar in the making.

As Ransom Garcia and Shawn Stevens said, every artist who walks through our Coyote Country performance vault is great. However, few are amazing. Dean surmised his raw talent that particular day with his acoustic performance and unfiltered vocals.

On Monday, Dean elevated the ambience at Gilley’s and gave a performance that left the crowd speechless.

Dean performed his smash hits such as “Don’t Come Lookin,” “Trailer Park,” “Greenbroke” and more. The crowd vibrated with energy and country spirit.

Dean’s rugged demeanor and nonchalant — yet graceful — stage presence was the perfect compliment to the humble stage at Gilley’s.

Many artists who later shot into superstardom performed at Gilley’s during the burgeoning stages of their careers. Artists such as Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen and Carly Pearce have performed at Gilley’s. And now, Dean joins this list of talent.

His road to becoming a fulltime artist started off when a tragic event occurred. Dean said he picked up the guitar after his family’s house burnt to the ground. While they were rebuilding, his family lived in the garage. He often spent time playing the guitar, letting the sound bounce off the walls and passing time, he said in February.

Dean is now hitting the road with a busy month scheduled. He’ll be playing shows and festivals across the country all throughout July! We’re so happy that Dean was able to come and party with us. Follow him and his journey on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
